» English Description
Berlèse, 1837, Monographie, ed.1, p.122: The flower is large (10 cm in diameter) full, rounded, of a beautiful orange-red. The exterior petals are numerous, rounded-oval, the greater part double notched, thick, of varied forms, largely imbricated, those which follow are lengthened and acuminate; the others obtuse, fringed and placed with less regularity than the first. The corolla is a regular rosette, depending on the season, often with marks and bands of white, sometimes entirely blotched. Originated in England. Berlèse, 1837, Monographie described Loukiana, but in his 1843 Iconographie it was renamed Loukiana Vera under pl.166 and a slightly different cultivar named Loukiana under pl.208, which appears to be a sport. Orthographic errors: ‘Louckiana’, ‘Lochiana’, ‘Louchiana’.
